Abstract

Temperature dependent elastic constants Cij(T) of Cu60Zr30Ti10 bulk metallic glass (BMG) have been studied using MHz frequency range electromagnetic acoustic resonance (EMAR) from 4.5 to 300 K. At ambient temperature, the BMG shows low shear/bulk modulus ratio (or equivalently high Poisson ratio) compared with that of corresponding crystalline state dues to the dense random packed glassy structure. Analysis of Cij(T) based on the Einstein type lattice vibration model revealed the notable softening in transverse mode acoustic phonons. This unusual vibrational property suggests the existence of liquid like weakly bonded region in the BMG.
